Questions to Answer

  1. The Flyers went three whole days without playing and still held their place. Back in action, are they in 6th at the end of the night?
  2. Can John Tavares go a game without scoring against the Flyers?
  3. Biron has been a sieve against us all year. Does that continue tonight?
  4. 16th straight?
